A Photographer's Introduction to Video

Moving with the times

You love to take photographs; maybe it’s how you make a living. So, why learn to shoot video? Today, we live in a fast-moving, information-hungry, multi-sensory society. Most people are no longer content to simply read about something - they want to see it in action and hear it too. And that applies to just about every online platform you can think of and a few you probably haven’t.

Video is a mind magnet - and a pretty powerful one. It provides quick access to information, it’s instantly engaging and easy to absorb - if it’s done well. These three factors are reasons to learn how to do it properly whether you’re using it to communicate, to educate or just to get creative. And, if your camera has the capacity to shoot video (and most do now), you have the primary tool for the job right there in your hands.

What you will take away from the day

On this intensive one-day course, we start with a compelling insight into the current state of the video industry and the way things are heading in the foreseeable future. Then it’s down to the practicalities. Basic camera kit and accessories are thoroughly covered and your questions answered. You will discover the techniques, the terminology and the key shots you need to get started with producing your own videos. All this, through a mix of practical demonstration, clear explanation and, of course, some video clips.  Finally, there’s an overview of the post-production process, workflow and associated software.

By the end of the day, you will have set up your own camera for video recording and have a clear vision of how this technology is going to work in your particular situation. With your own copy of the day’s presentation slides under your arm, you’ll be ready to put your video plan into action.
